    I just got this book this month, and I’ve already read it twice. It’s great to read a book that encourages you to do what you love, even when you feel that you can’t.

  2. I have ideas about writing,but am not sure how to start. Many are based on life experiences and people whom I’ve met through my job. I work in medicine and the providers,patients, have interesting tales to tell. I find it amazing what goes on behind closed doors,whether be exam room or otherwise. The cast of characters,providers who I have other names,the enabler,the candyman,the burnt out, the god complex is quite an array. The patients of all walks of life are the mostly best ,but some not are the best part of my day. When politics from administration throws their hand in, it’s not always about the patients,,$$$. I’ve worked for 20 plus years,from small private practice to non-profit organizations(although totally profit driven). I worked in Maine for e few years and I know the best was a small practice in Milo. I’d appreciate any insight. Thanks! Phoebe

    Hi Phoebe! Thanks for the comment. I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking – It sounds like you have a lot of insight and stories from your life. The best way to start writing is just to start! You can begin with an outline/brain dump of all your stories, just as one line topics or titles. Then start writing them out. Writing is a skill like any other – when you first start, it’s hard, but it gets easier.

    You can just write on your own, on your own computer, or you can do it online in a blog. I like the blog because the public accountability forces me to keep writing, even when i get busy with other stuff.

    Hope that helps!
